St. John's Church (Episcopal), a plain edifice at the corner of Broad and 24th Streets on Church Hill, was built in 1740, and is the oldest church in Richmond. The pew still remains where Patrick Henry made his famous closing with the words 'Give me liberty or give me death,' when, in 1775, the Virginia Convention met here to decide the action of the colony. Many of the headstones in the churchyard (in which the mother of Edgar Allan Poe was buried) bear dates as remote as 1751.
